Such a rare beer. I’m so privileged. Light brown. Very thin, sour, caramel. One of the worst Mexican darks, no match for Indio.

There are much better beers available to be drinking this. Its not good for a dark beer, has too little flavor and the flavor it does have is kinda pungent.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A reddish amber with a thin off white head. Lightly skunked beer, with light caramel, and herbal notes. In mouth, well it is the equivalent of the Rickard’s Red in Mexico, taste like a regular lager with red colour. Very thin. Bottle from Nekronos. The Santa Fe was much better.

Grassy, skunky malt aroma, copper, pours a small tan head. Mild candied malt taste, light bodied, sweet not much carbonation, ordinary. Thank You Nekronos.

If I am not mistaken this may be called Sol Ambar. I found it had a pleasant but thin flavor. some malt and hops but overall thin bodied.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 Please, not to be confused with Sol nor Sol Brava, this one is found in Veracruz and Puebla, in Mexico, the bottle is the same as Sol, but the beer is dark, as Leon. The top is red, then you can distinguish it from the other one when the bottle is empty. It’s flavor is great, ranked 1 for me in Mexican beers. I’ll upload a photo soon.
